Made it Across!

Josh sent around the morning email. RU16 successfully surfaced on the southern side of the shipping lanes. A new trail blazed between Massachussets and the shelf break. Josh will keep RU16 on this southerly course for most of today, surfacing every 3 hours to download data. Once we cross over the 100 m isobath, taking us well south of the shipping lanes, RU16 is programmed to turn right and head due west towards Hudson Canyon. There it will link up with Eric Powell's vessel on a fish research cruize.
